Bible Atlases

I am often asked "What is your favorite Bible Atlas?" I am happy to share my favorites with you!  But first let me say that the best atlas, Bible or otherwise, is the one you will use and become familiar with. We use our atlases daily and each child has their go-to atlas, so we keep them in one convenient location. And we have, well, quite a few atlases as each one has different strengths and weaknesses, and each one is slightly different. Thus we end up with a lot of comparing and contrasting which makes for some rather robust investigations.

Here are my favorites:

1. The maps in the back of our Bibles.

2. The Golden Bible Atlas with Relief Maps in Full Color by Samuel Terrien (it's living - the text   could be read and narrated! I adore the illustrations.)


 3. Reader's Digest Atlas of the Bible (thrift store staple and surprisingly excellent.)



I pick up vintage magazine racks at thrift stores and keep different collections together. This is our atlas rack.



I have other Bible helps that I love but will save those for another post.  And I have a different opinion about world atlases which I will also share later.  Which Bible atlases have you found to be the most helpful?

Teaching from Peace,

  1. Have you seen the Then and Now maps from Rose Publishing? They have these nifty see though overlays that show the changes of the lands from Bible to modern times. At ASI, I really developed a fondness for the Holman Bible Atlas. Easy to use and very clear in diagrams.

    1. Thanks for your input, Jeannette! I do have the Then and Now but not the Holman Bible Atlas. I will check it out!

  2. Thank you for these recommendations!
    Do you have recommendations of atlases to correspond with students' other history studies?

    1. Well, we like the DK Concise World Atlas (2011) and for a new atlas, the DK editions work well. For historical studies, it's the map in the book or a good old Google search. I have other atlases, but nothing that is fantastic! For fun, we love the Mizielinska's MAPS.

      Warmly,
      Nancy
